Viking Orion is the smallest ship in the Viking Ocean fleet, carrying just 930 guests. Like her sister ships, Viking Orion has been designed with Scandinavian chic in mind, with the airy Wintergarden and cosy Explorer’s Lounge appealing to guests who love a home-from-home vibe with that added dash of luxury. Fares include a veranda stateroom, an excursion in every port, all on board meals, plus drinks at lunch and dinner.
Will this be the year you expand your horizons and enrich your interaction with your destination in every way?
Considered to be one of the best at sea, even beating six-star cruise lines to the top spot, The Nordic Spa is in keeping with Viking’s Nordic heritage and the spa has been designed with the holistic wellness philosophy of Scandinavia in mind.

Soak your stresses away in the hydrotherapy pool, reinvigorate in the steam room, and indulge body and mind with a choice of Nordic therapies. The Nordic Spa is also home to the snow grotto, where snowflakes fall from the ceiling, plus there’s the addition of a sauna and a hydrotherapy pool in which to unwind.
Manfredi’s serves the best steak you will have eaten in years. Elsewhere on board, The Restaurant serves the widest selection of culinary options, while The Chef’s Table is second-to-none with its multi-course tasting menu and wine pairings. And of course, nothing can compare to The Kitchen Table when it comes to regional dishes served straight from market to table.
From Veranda Staterooms to an abundance of extra perks and comforts in Viking Orion’s Explorer Suites, there’s no finer way to travel. Staterooms vary in size, starting from a generous 270 sq.ft. and are complete with king-size beds, luxury linens and toiletries, plus heated bathroom floors and luxury showers.
Whether you opt to share a cocktail with friends in the Explorer’s Lounge or linger over a Norwegian breakfast in Mamsen’s gourmet deli, both spaces have been designed with relaxation in mind and offer some of the best views from the ship. Elsewhere on board, you can get cosy under a canopy of Scandinavian trellised wood in the Wintergarden, perhaps indulging in one of the best afternoon teas at sea. Of course, you may simply opt to spend a lazy afternoon in the ship’s glass-backed Infinity Pool, which is cantilevered off the stern and offers fantastic ocean views.
Instead of the casinos and water slides that can be found on the ships of many mainstream cruise lines, Viking Cruises offers something a little different with Viking’s Culture Curriculum®. Through world-class lectures on history and art, tastings of vintage wines from the destinations you visit, restaurant menus inspired by local cuisine, informative port talks and destination performances featuring folkloric shows and musicians, Viking Cruises are set to expand your horizons.
All of these signature guest favourites and more will be present on Viking Orion when she sails the Mediterranean, Asia and Australasia, before becoming the first Viking Ocean ship ever to visit Alaska in early 2019.
